Story description[]

It sits on an inlet at the port's edge. Here, the Fierce Philanthropist runs an illicit but profitable business converting ships into zubmarines. After all, philanthropy doesn't come cheap.


Actions Requirements Effects Notes
Have your ship converted for zubmarine travel

The Philanthropist greets you warmly, with sherry. "Your money's no good here! I owe your predecessor a great debt."
